Airsickness Boxes.



Ben Kopel led me to the water


Kristin Sanders lives in New Orleans and teaches at Loyola University.  She is the author of the chapbook “Orthorexia” (dancing girl press). Her work has appeared in journals such as Octopus, Everyday Genius, elimae, Strange Machine, and HTMLGIANT.


The shot opens with our “performer” in the garbage can, a male voice off camera says, “do it” and then our “performer” pops out of the can to shake her stuff. It enacts a pornographic frame establishing who is the viewer, the one who controls the gaze, and who is the viewed, the one who performs for the gaze. It’s hysterical in the dual meaning of the phrase as the video is funny and aims to poke fun, but hysterical as well in the pathological sense in that Sanders (the artist) uses her own body to enact a display of the tragically comic. Stuffing pearls into her mouth while standing in an open washing machine: she is quite literally the poet silencing herself, suffocating in the absurdity of these iconic displays: domestic and sexually available. Pornography exists in gluts of images, it’s self-engorging and etymologically, from Fr. engorger “to obstruct, block, congest,” O.Fr. engorgier “to swallow, devour,” from en- (see en- (1)) + gorge “throat.” In other words, to strangle on that which we desire.

The Snake Pit (1948) Anatole Litvak

Twenty Four Frames

There were few films in 1948 that match up to the power of Anatole Litvak’s “The Snake Pit,” a film that was groundbreaking in its day.  Mental Illness was not dealt with on screen, at least not at the level and detail seen here.  The institutional living conditions these people were forced to live in was swept under the rug, as they say. Mary Jane Ward’s novel was based on her own experiences as a patient in a psychiatric hospital. After reading Ward’s first person novel, director Anatole Litvak wanted to bring the harrowing story to the screen. Naturally, the subject matter was considered too controversial and downbeat for most studios. 20th Century Fox finally agreed to make the film, which Litvak would not only direct but co-produced.

Olivia de Havilland was not the first choice for the role, that spot went to Gene Tierney who had to bow…

Highlander 1994


The Screamsheet

Not exactly awe-inspiring animation here.One of the remarkable things about Highlander is that the folks in charge of the franchise just don’t seem to get it. Case in point: Highlander: The Animated Series and Highlander III. Both came about in 1994, when the TV series had hit its stride and made the franchise popular again. The logical thing to do would have been to produce films based on the series and establish some continuity in the property. Instead, we got the exact opposite.
